    Found this book through the Goodreads What s the title of that book forum, and, to be fair, no one said it was excellent, just that it was about a group of people on an island playing a dangerous game for a chance at a million dollars this was the 70s, so it was a lot of money I love books like this so I thought I would take a risk and give it a try Unfortunately it was very dated and the sexism hard to swallow the women are only going to get ahead by crying and or by sleeping with all t Found this book through the Goodreads What s the title of that book forum, and, to be fair, no one said it was excellent, just that it was about a group of people on an island playing a dangerous game for a chance at a million dollars this was the 70s, so it was a lot of money I love bo...

    I ve read this book any number of times over the years, and it remains a deliciously fun romp, even though I know every twist and turn coming Oddly, it seems to polarise opinion Searching the various reading websites seems to garner either fanatic 4 5 star ratings or scathing 1 2 rants with very little ground in between I think some of that may have to do with expectations tied in to the author s other works.Poul Anderson was primarily ...

    It s a classic premise someone of wealth gathers together a number of people who need money, and puts them through hell to get it This book managed to bring a few new tricks to the idea Simply reading the cover blurb and the first couple of chapters, one might think that the seven people are simply going to represent the seven deadly sins and their host the Devil Reading along, though, it s clear that the characters are farcomplicated They each embody a number of sins and virtues No It s a classic premise someone of wealth gathers together a number of people who need money, and puts them through hell to get it This book managed to bring a few new tricks to the idea Simply reading the cover blurb and the first couple of chapters, one might think that the seven people are simply going...

    With its multiple first person viewpoint characters, THE DEVIL S GAME has some similarities with Theodore Sturgeon s GODBODY Did Sturgeon read this novel before or while working on his final exploration of love We may never know, but I suspect he did Anderson s book, too, has a few things to say about love, but at its heart it san exploration of power TDG makes it quite clear that love, too, is a form of power that can be used for good and evil That makes it a darker book than Sturgeo With its multiple first person viewpoint characters, THE DEVIL S GAME has some similarities with Theodore Sturgeon s GODBODY Did Sturgeon read this novel before or while working on his final exploration of love We may n...

    I m giving this book 3 stars mainly for the concept I personally thought this book was lacking in many areas and was confusing or annoying to read Overly described settings, changes from third person to first between chapters, and a long main character list that made it difficult to remember qualities of individuals since we are constantly learning something new about someone from all different perspectives and plots Really wanted to learnabout Samael and wisheddevelopment on th I m giving this book 3 stars mainly for the concept I personally thought this book was lacking in many areas and was confusing or annoying to read Overly described settings, changes from third person to first between chapters, and a long main charact...

    There are a couple of Fantasy Island gone wrong moments that are interesting, but otherwise this is like fiction as done by a textbook writer.
